We Feel Fine

We Feel Fine is an art project that finds sentences from blogs and stitches together a real-time picture of how the web community is feeling. The default visualization uses a particle system to show the most recent thousand feelings. You can also build your own set based on criteria, such as gender, age, or location. Click the heart menu and go to Mobs to watch the particles organize in impressive ways. The gestalt of the visualization is compelling, but the details are the best part. Some sample montages. Also see a related project, Love Lines, which uses the same API.
